The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State, says it is opposed to alleged deployment of Professor Kayode Soremekun, vice chancellor, Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, for Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
Soremekun had served as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, returning officer for Edo governorship poll held recently, and won by the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ayo Fadaka, Director of Publicity, PDP, Ondo, alleged Soremekun was being drafted to oversee “plans” “to manipulate and rig the forthcoming election”.
“We hereby warn INEC not to bring Soremekun and his unscrupulous gang to Ondo State. We emphasise that he is not the only Vice Chancellor in Nigeria and as such does not exclusively possess the skill to discharge that responsibility.
“He is not welcome here and INEC will only incur our wrath if it makes any attempt to impose him to superintend over our election considering the fact that we are rejecting this attempt to bring him here,” said Fadaka.
